g. The Taiping forbade opium usage or the drinking of alcohol. Men and women were treated equally. Captured land was given to Taiping families on the basis of family size. Every 25 families had an elected sergeant who ran Christian services, settled disputes, kept records of production and indoctrinated the young in Taiping doctrines and Bible study. h. Many millions of Chinese were threatened by the moral fervor of the Taiping. Many resented the egalitarian/equal outlook towards men and women. These millions joined the Qing/Manchu. i. Many of Hong Xiuchuan’s most able advisers were killed in battle by 1860. Some, like Yang Xiuqing, were killed in power struggles. Hong himself died in July of 1864. He had surrendered himself to a life of luxury and had lost much of his religious standing. j. The Westerners supported the Qing militarily. The Taiping hatred of opium would have diminished the European’s opium market. In 1864 the city of Nanjing fell and as many as 100,000 Taiping rebels gathered in buildings and then set the buildings aflame committing mass suicide. k. During the 13 years of struggle as many as 20,000,000 Chinese died.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
